Veterans’ Jobs Bill Blocked in the Senate
By JENNIFER STEINHAUER
September 19, 2012 5:31 pmSeptember 20, 2012 11:00 am

Eager to shoot down President Obama’s legislative agenda just weeks before the election, Senate Republicans on Wednesday blocked a measure that would have provided $1 billion over five years to help veterans find work in their communities.

The measure, which would have potentially created jobs for up to 20,000 veterans, was blocked on a procedural point by Republicans, who argued that the bill was unpaid for. Senator Patty Murray, a Washington Democrat and the bill’s main sponsor, said the bill would have covered the costs in part with fees on Medicare providers and suppliers who are delinquent on their tax bills.

The procedural vote was 58 to 40; 60 votes would have been required to waive Republican objections.

The bill was opposed, by, among others, Senator Tom Coburn, Republican of Oklahoma, who said he believed the bill duplicated existing job programs for veterans that are not well run, and Senator Rand Paul, Republican of Kentucky, who has been seeking amendments on bills that would cut off funding to Egypt and to Pakistan until Pakistan freed Shakil Afridi, the doctor who helped the United States find Osama bin Laden.

“It’s both shocking and shameful that Republicans today chose to kill a bill to put America’s veterans back to work,” Ms. Murray said in a statement.

“At a time when one in four young veterans are unemployed,” she said,“Republicans should have been able, for just this once, to put aside the politics of obstruction and to help these men and women provide for their families.”

She added that the vote was “stark reminder” that Mitch McConnell, Senate minority leader from Kentucky, and Senate Republicans “are willing to do absolutely anything to fulfill the pledge he made nearly two years ago to defeat President Obama. It doesn’t matter who gets in their way or which Americans they have to sacrifice in that pursuit, even if it’s our nation’s veterans.”

Some Republicans, five of whom voted for the bill, also seemed disappointed about the failure of legislation that had the veneer of bipartisan support.“These men and women have worn our uniform, shouldered the burden and faced unthinkable dangers in forward areas during a very dangerous time,” Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska said.

The vote was met with a strong rebuke from the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.“Once again, this Congress let partisan bickering stand in the way of putting thousands of America’s heroes back to work,“ said Paul Rieckhoff, the organization’s founder.“Lowering veteran unemployment is something both parties should be able to agree on – even in an election year.”

sounds like a lot more debt for some temporary jobs. You can't buy jobs, that's what democrats try to do.

If they were going to pay a billion dollars over 5 years, they might as well use it to pay the vets and give up on creating fake jobs.

If the economists are left-wing, it doesn't say so in the article. Please post your links documenting that they are left-wing.
Also, from the positions they hold, it seems very unlikely that they are more dumb ass than the average conservative. Please post your links documenting that they are dumb ass.
Republicans have blocked hundreds of bills. Are you saying Democrats aren't entitled to follow your example? Please post links to Reid's fairy birth certificate.

I don't chose to post any links for a limp dicked idiot like you. You are a left wing moron who wouldn't believe the links anyway. The "Average Conservative" as you call them have more balls and brains than you and the rest of the ignorant sheeple. Democratic obstructionism is every bit as prevalent as Republican obstructionism, you are just too big of a coward to admit it. Wise up numbnuts, your blind allegiance to Obama just makes you look even more ignorant than you are, if that is possible.

Without evidence, everything you say is just conservative-biased personal opinion, topped with generous layers of bile and venom. Just think how ignorant the average conservative is, and then realize that half of them are even more ignorant. It's no wonder you have nothing constructive to say.

They give blogs, theDailyKos, and "because Obama said so" as evidence and then question someone elses. It is hilarious.

It comes out to be 50K per job. With a billion dollars why not start real companies and give them real jobs. Hell the government might even make a profit if they can run the company. Errrrrr yeah I know, stop laughing, I typed it and then bust out laughing myself. But if they put vets in charge to run the companies instead of some government pencil pushers it could happen.

It is refreshing to see you write about ignorance. A dumb ass, good for nothing liberal criticizing other people. Liberals are what you get when you mix equal parts of arrogance with ignorance. And by the way numbnuts, I did provide a link.
